Officials looking to make update Talbot Co. animal ordinances

In Talbot County,  officials are looking to make changes to current animal ordinances.

The Executive Director at Talbot Humane says it's been several years since the county has revisited regulations regarding the care of domestic animals.

One of the recommendations they will be making is to allow officers to intervene if an animal is outside during a extreme weather advisory. Another recommendation is to do mandatory annual checks at breeding facilities.

"This is something that has been on our minds for some time now and our public wants change, we want change. The county ordinances has not been update since 2006, and in those 12 years so many things have changed , what's considered humane treatment for animals and it's time for Talbot county to get with the time," says Patty Quimby, the Executive Director at Talbot Humane.

The organization will be presenting their recommendations in front of the county council on April 12th at 6 PM in the Bradley Meeting Room at the Talbot County Courthouse.
